WINDSOR (WBNG) -- A Kiwanis club hosted an event in Windsor Wednesday night honoring those entering the military after high school. 

The event called, "First to Say Thank You," honored 59 students from 31 districts throughout New York and Pennsylvania.

This is the fifth year the Conklin Kiwanis Club has partnered with "Our Community Salutes" to honor students and their parents for their commitment to service.

"It feels good that the community has gotten together to commemorate everyone going into the service," said student Gunnar Ford. "I think its good and people who are not in the service might think twice about going into the service. It might be a good option."

The keynote speaker for the ceremony was 1980 Windsor High School graduate and United States Air Force General Brett McMullen,
